Chicken and Broccoli Braid

This is a really old pampered chef recipe but it is still one of my favorites.  Every time I have leftover chicken or leftover chicken salad, I like to make chicken braid to use it up.  My daughter and I made this one Friday night before we headed downtown to take in a Braves game - I didn't want to make a big dinner to ruin our appetites for hot dogs at the ballpark.   This was a nice quick and easy meal to fix before we headed out the door.  

Chicken and Broccoli Braid
2 cups chicken salad              
2 packages crescent rolls
egg white

Use leftover chicken to make a chicken salad. 

 Add fresh broccoli.

Arrange crescent rolls on a silpat lined baking sheet so that the large ends of the triangles overlap.

Arrange chicken salad down the center of the rolls.  Top with cheese.

Fold each triangle over the middle and tuck under the opposite side to form the braid.

Brush the top of the braid with egg white.

Bake 20-25 minutes at 375.

The game turned out to be a disappointment.  The Braves lost 6-0 to San Fransisco.  On the up side, the weather the perfect, our seats were spectacular and the firework show after the game was incredible.  All in all, a great night.
